TASMANIAN INDUSTRIAL COMMISSION
Industrial Relations Act 1984
Liquor, Hospitality and Miscellaneous Union - Tasmanian Branch
 When these matters came on for hearing on 1 April 2009, Mr M Watson and Mr T Kleyn appeared for the Minister administering the State Service Act 2000. Mr P Tullgren appeared for the Liquor, Hospitality and Miscellaneous Union - Tasmanian Branch.
 Mr Watson explained that both agreements applied to all Department of Education and PY10 facilities.
 The Salaries and Conditions of Employment agreement varies salaries to reflect the salary adjustments in the Tasmanian State Service Union Agreement 2008 . A number of allowances have been absorbed together with updating of the Protective Clothing and Split Shift Allowances.
 The Job Security agreement replaces the Department of Education - School Attendants Industrial Agreement 2003 , and essentially continues the job security arrangement for a further five years.
 Mr Kleyn supported the submissions of Mr Watson and referred to an ongoing review in relation to cafeterias.
 Mr Tullgren advised that both agreements had been endorsed by members and assured the Commission that employees were not disadvantaged as a consequence.
 I am satisfied that the agreements are consistent with both the Wage Fixing Principles and the public interest requirements of the Act, and do not disadvantage the employees concerned.
 Pursuant to s55(4) of the Act, the agreements are approved.
 The Salaries and Conditions of Employment agreement shall be operative from the beginning of the first pay period to commence on or after 1 December 2008 and shall remain in force until 30 June 2011.
 The Job Security agreement shall be operative from the beginning of the first pay period to commence on or after 1 April 2009 and shall remain in force until 30 September 2013.
